22 New Elementary Science FL Standard-Specific Activities!



Penda Learning's Content Development Team just created and launched 22 new elementary science Florida standard-specific activities that focus on the highly assessed benchmarks for FL Grade 5 SSA.


Activities have been built for the following standards:

Earth/Space Science

  • SC.4.E.5.4

  • SC.4.E.6.1

  • SC.4.E.6.3

  • SC.4.E.6.4

  • SC.5.E.5.1

  • SC.5.E.5.3

  • SC.5.E.7.1

  • SC.5.E.7.3

Life Science

  • SC.3.L.14.1

  • SC.4.L.16.4

  • SC.5.L.14.1

  • SC.5.L.14.2

  • SC.5.L.17.1

Nature of Science

  • SC.5.N.1.1

  • SC.5.N.1.1

  • SC.5.N.2.1

  • SC.5.N.2.2

Physical Science

  • SC.5.P.10.1

  • SC.5.P.13.2

  • SC.5.P.8.1

  • SC.5.P.8.3

  • SC.5.P.9.1


How Each Activity Was Designed/Built:

  • Each activity was built specifically for the standard/benchmark noted

  • Each activity contains between 5 - 10 practice questions, specifically focused on the standard/benchmark - questions are written in EOC/high-stakes assessment style.

  • Each question includes a graphic (non-linguistic representation)

  • Each question offers a read-aloud option to better support ESOL/ELL/LEP and lower level readers. Just look for and click on the speaker icon at the top of the activity screen.

  • Using Google Chrome, any activity can be translated from English into another language by using the browser's built-in translate feature - question and answer options will translate, however graphics will not.

  • As with all Penda activities, each question is auto-graded and will provide the student with instant feedback - all regular report capabilities are available for teachers.

  • All activities can be "copied" then edited/modified to differentiate instruction further or personalize the content if a teacher wishes to do so.


Teachers can gain access to these activities by signing into their Penda Learning account first, then clicking here. We hope these additional resources will further support elementary science grade 5 SSA prep efforts and have a positive impact on student learning gains.
